The Washington Commanders took care of business in Week 11, beating the Houston Texans 23-10 to advance to 6-5 on the year.

Offensive spotlight: Commanders tight end Logan Thomas had the most productive game of his year to date, snaring all five of his catchable targets for 65 yards. Three of his receptions went for 15 or more yards, he caught his only contested target of the day and he averaged 5.6 yards after the catch per reception.

Defensive spotlight: DI Jonathan Allen was on an absolute tear today. The veteran defensive lineman racked up two sacks, one hit and three hurries across 34 pass-rush snaps, and he added a tackle for loss against the run.

Rookie spotlight: RB Brian Robinson Jr. ran the ball 15 times for 57 rushing yards, 45 of which came after contact. He forced five missed tackles and moved the chains on 26.7% of his carries.

Offensive line spotlight: Houston's Kenyon Green and Scott Quessenberry won't be too eager to review today's film. The two combined for five pressures allowed, as they were both beaten a number of times in pass protection.
